Spinach, feta and avocado pesto dip

Spinach Pesto Dip

Warning: Spinach, feta and avocado pesto dip is addictive, rich and a little too tasty for its own good.


Spinach Pesto Dip

    Ingredients
  • 1 bag spinach
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tub (250 mls) cream cheese
  • Feta
  • Pine nuts
  • Basil
  • ½ lemon, squeezed
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Combine the avocado, cream cheese, feta, Parmesan cheese and cream into a large mixing bowl. Briefly stir together. 
  2. Add the spinach, roughly tearing it with your hands before mixing in. Repeat with the basil.
  3. Squeeze the lemon juice in and add the garlic, crushed. 
  4. Mix together until it becomes a smooth paste. You may need to stop and stir with a spoon once or twice to reach this consistency though.
  5. Fry up or roast pine nuts for a few minutes, or until they begin to brown.
  6. Add them to the mixture, along with the mixed herbs, vegetable stock, salt and pepper. 
  7. Stir until combined. Bamix a little more if necessary. 
  8. Transfer to a smaller bowl for serving
